All Cars Stop Here - OO scale Hong Kong influenced micro-layout. has now grown up enough to cease to be a workbench item as it is now beginning to look like a tram layout!

Hobby Scenes road cones protect the work site and Caboose Industries 208S Switch Throws provide point operation (I used to model HO American).

'All Cars Stop Here' made its first public viewing at my local Tramway & Light Railway Society Group meeting at Ipswich Transport Museum along with Peter Boyt's 'Crickey - It's a shed (He forgot the shed!) and Phil Carver' magnetically connected N scale trolleybuses and trams. The real star of the day was the latest restoration of the museum's Cambridge Horse Tram 7.

This layout has a modern office backscene but needs a Hong Kong endscene to give the layout its oriental character. Having googled free-issue stock photos I've come up with one that with slight adjustment will fit the bill.
